Cooking Timber rattlesnakes


As we showed you earlier, some people kill snakes to eat. They are very easy to skin and gut. So here’s how you do it, right along with a couple of recipes and a “how-to” video.

Warning: They kill the snake on camera. Personally, I think that’s useful. But if you don’t want to watch, he gives you a heads-up so you can look away.

I’D LIKE TO ADD: He cuts the head off but doesn’t show you how to dispose of it. Know that the venom can still be excreted by the fangs even if the snake is dead.  Pick up with tongs. Burn. If you plan to bury it, make sure the hole is deeper than your pets can dig.
